Book: Improving the Productivity and Sustainability of Rice–Wheat Systems: Issues and Impacts, ASA Special Publication 65, 2003
Published by: American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America
IRRI, CIMMYT, and ASA-CSSA-SSSA brought together world experts to explore the future of the global food supply in the context of one of the most widely used production systems. Rice-wheat rotation in the Indo-Gangetic Plains and Asia is a system where Green Revolution gains are probably not repeatable and must give way to new solutions to issues of malnutrition, sustainability, and economic challenges. From the farmer-researcher interface to soil physical properties induced by flooding, this book repeatedly merges larger issues with the specifics of agricultural sciences.
